of the pilot because at the end of the day it's difficult to say that was the deleted allocated authority it's not meanwhile the fault of the policy one of the things the project sponsors we're working with to try to engage their precipitation of how well, this is working last thing the project lists the perspective has 25 projects will will be projected allocations it represents about a third of one hundred and six some projects we have in rfp in a problematic categories and the total of $5 million in prop k fund and for per inspection for 2015 we have $4 million it's a relatively small process the cac approved it but up to the
12:01 pm
committee if you want to you can remove those if you have any questions, i'll be happy to answer them and jonathan will be happy to answer. >> supervisor campos thank you, very much and thank you to the staff there was a lot of thought and work i want to say have are a great deal of respect by i'll vote against it is a misguided policy if you look at the 4 page memo that was sent to us not a single line even addresses what the problem actually is it describes the policy but didn't address the one bullet that they have which is, you know, to expedite allocation of prop k funds i mean, if you're going to change the determination of authority this is one of the most serious things a body what
12:02 pm
had you have to have examples of why the change t is needed simply saying you need to allocate the fund is not sufficient i have to hear the timely project was impede because of delegation of lack of authority and beyond that i think if you are changing for a third of the projects the role of the citizens advisory committee and not taking them out of the picture and not only taking them but taking this committee out of the picture you better have a good reason and i think it is telling that staff is given a lot of segregation to make sure if they deem a project to be controversial it wouldn't be on the list part of the transparency is for the public to decide if something is
12:03 pm
controversial things are likely not to be controversial if the public doesn't get an opportunity to say anything i think this is really misguided i know it has good tennis but the wrong the we're going to the ballot asking voters for hundreds of million dollars and now we're talking about diminishing transparency and accountability because that is precisely what's happening here i think we're sending the wrongs message i don't know why this is happening i'm surprised with all the things i've seen as a member of this agency this is the first time i'm what is going on here i don't understand this so i'll be respectfully voting against it i be sure that my colleagues in my district know about this.
12:04 pm
>> thank you supervisor kim. >> so actually having i have a press conference it downstairs i'm not sure this could be expanding continued i see the benefits of some of it but i agree there are a lot of questions i have about this allocation i like extremely the process i get frustrated at the project delivery so i like the idea of extremely bureaucracy but i want to feel comfortable to support that that makes sense for small projects might be $75,000 can be streamlined but i'm gladly we're looking at walk first at least going through vision zero i want to assure that walk first happens as quickly as possible but we don't know accident locations we know what the
12:05 pm
overall plan and the mta has identified as provided for walk first but not gotten the project plan with the alleyway actual locations i imagine the board or commission times to look at accident things before 3 more going out this is my initial feedback this deserves a longer conversation this is my motion to continue it. >> thank you supervisor breed. >> i said support a motion for continuance if i had to vote open this item today, i wouldn't be able to support it i have concerns about streamlining the process and the prop k funds from my understanding a lot of the cac and the committees there were established were to make sure there was public input from a variety of places on those
12:06 pm
particular items i know that some of the departments have expressed frustration with me trying to get the project done as quickly as possible and not being able to assault of some of the details but there's a process we need to under take you previous we not change the process unless i clearly understand why this is being proposed it is two random to say it's a controversial project a small dollars amount like a bulb out could constitute a controversial situation is it's not about the dollar but the fact we're changing it in the city and making sure i macro decisions we need to make sure that the public has a seat at the table i'm not comfortable with what is being proposed. >> supervisor yee.
12:07 pm
>> i'll also be willing to support a tennis when i had the discussion earlier it was a little bit - it was a long discussion because i wasn't too sure what is rational was and what the proof and any sufficiency and if we're going to be talking efficiency there are other possible vehicles to get there i think we should have a discussion on this. >> thank you and you've heard the sentiments of committee i hope i bring it back with the organ but specific examples this is addressing and how to maintain accountability. >> if i may the staff raised the concerns and i think also, if you made things like jonathan
12:08 pm
spoke on behalf of the project sponsors but from the perspective with but approval of the 5 year plans just to reference we h have more details than any other counties but the cac board has had a chance we're missing as people put their radar out when the allocation come forward and that's what is lost with the policy with that, i think supervisor campos. >> your explanation to how the policy works but not providing the justification what went wrong. >> i think jonathan should speak to that it doesn't allow the last minute projects because the board has to approval the list of projects. >> thank you marie jonathan
12:09 pm
rivers with the mta, you know, maria brought universe i up the background that had to do with the studies of krorldz and the feedback a lot coming from us some keep in mind from the public works and i think the staff i completely agree with supervisor campos that part of the issue not reflected is the problem and the sponsors identifying the problem not the authorities responsibility to say they're not being as quickly as possible the policy as framed real focuses on the quick improvements we want to get out open the streets one example hapsz to be the match for caltrain grant we might get $200,000 we need even though $300,000 match we want to good faith those with caltrain but we have to have the design the 4 to
12:10 pm
6 weeks behind on that we have an obligation schedule with caltrain and trying to get past the red tape another example it's been very important for this vision zero committee for us to continue it work with dpw on better cooperations especially with repeal pavement projects and very often dpw they want to go out and bid a contract may have to delay the bid because we want to add 20 to $30,000 or so, so as maria pointed out within the prop k $200 million it is $5 million and it's really those opportunities with regard to vision zero a lot of the projects are quick paint projects we want to get out
12:11 pm
there as quickly as possible you've seen the allocations for $8,000 it is a paint project so we can do those in bundle and cooperate it makes the projects done quicker will happy to have this postponed and come back and work with you. >> it mr. rose. >> supervisor breed. >> can i add it would be hopefully to see the mta supports them and have feedback from them as well as and others providing consistent comments with the projects relied to the prop k funds. >> one thing we've built into that was useful i want to thank the authority staff the process we went through this year, the cac we spent 3 hours on special
12:12 pm
meetings going through each category and projects and questions they had it will give you a better sense of the strategy and we'll know what we're doing through the global process we've committed we're very transparent and have ever opportunity to answer all questions. >> thank you anyone from the public wish to speak on this item anyone want to speak please come forward. >> tomorrow wednesday not morning or afternoon but evening 7:30 the american culture center so some u.s. taiwan relationship of culture matter some people speaking in the buchd temple i think that is as i said we have
